I have found out that logging out, or a restart, usually fixes the problem. I have also noticed that the problem lies with using an external sound interface... I occasionally use an emagic emi 2|6 interface, and after having used it my email does not give the new mail sound anymore. As long as I don't use the emi mail "sounds off" as expected. I guess the problem lies with core audio, which has been updated thoroughly in Tiger.Andy G said:Ok, so I've re-selected the alert sound in Mail preferences, but still no joy.
Any other ideas out there?
Garageband initializes CoreAudio when it starts. That might be what's needed to fix the problem - resetting CoreAudio.mad jew said:I lost a few sounds last week, but not the new mail sound, and the solution I got from the Apple support forums was to open then close Garageband.
Weird, but it worked for me.
